Understanding Data - the basics

Do you want to evaluate how successful your business or project is, but don't know how to use the information you already have, or what data to collect? Do you make decisions based on information presented to you and want to know more about evaluating the data presented, rather than just accepting what someone says at face value - how real is a trend, for example. Do you find data rather scary, but want to know how you can use it to help improve the performance of your business. If so, this course is for you.

This one-day course will introduce how you can use and understand data in the course of your work, to help you evaluate whether you have successfully reached targets and help you make better informed decisions.
